When the When We Were Young festival returns for its 2024 edition, it looks like fans will be treated to something beyond the traditional performances. Earlier today, promoter Live Nation just dropped a tease (that has since been deleted) that suggested that many of the 2024 performers will be playing full-album sets revisiting some of their classic records. With the lineup now announced, it is in fact a bill of bands mostly playing full-album performances.
The 2024 event returns to the Las Vegas Festival grounds on Oct. 19, 2024 with an outstanding lineup that includes My Chemical Romance, Fall Out Boy, A Day to Remember, Jimmy Eat World, Dashboard Confessional, Pierce the Veil, The Used, Simple Plan, The All-American Rejects and many more.

You'll also get A Day To Remember playing Homesick, Dashboard Confessional doing Dusk and Summer, Jimmy Eat World playing Bleed American, Pierce the Veil doing Collide with the Sky, Simple Plan performing No Pads, No Helmets, Just Balls, The Used doing In Love and Death, The All-American Rejects playing their self-titled set, Coheed and Cambrian taking on Good Apollo, I'm Burning Star IV, Underoath doing They're Only Chasing Safety, New Found Glory playing Sticks and Stones and many more.
